Dododex should add information pertaining to knocking large creatures out with Ballista and Boulder Turrets, and the Cannon, as Giga taming is a perfect opportunity to use a few Dino Gates to trap them and voilla, your turret has unrestricted firing lines on the beast.
I dare you to raise one!! They are savage if you got two high lvl parents (about lvl 140ish) and you get imprinting on it. The thing will become an adult with about 230% melee and basically one chomp any bronto!!! But on the down side you loose your job and your girlfriend
Make 4 metal dino gates and 1 large bear trap. Place three frames and door into an incomplete square and the large bear trap in the I between them. Lure the Giga into the trap and while its trapped place 4th down to make the square. Then just light it up with tranqs
